"Unlikely Entrepreneur: the Intersection of Life Experiences, Food, and a Drive to Succeed"
Not every entrepreneur has a childhood dream of starting a business; some don't discover until midway through their first career that they're driven to be their own boss. Still others who know they want to own a company are unsure what business to start.
With no background in food or experience running a company, Regina launched Marty's Market in July 2012. The company continues to evolve and challenges Regina and her team in new ways every day. Through the lens of her experiences, Regina will share what being an officer in the Navy has taught her about building a business, what starting a company has taught her about commanding a ship, and what they both have to teach all of us about entrepreneurship.

"Lead Like a Girl"
The business case for diversity has never been stronger. Organizations with more women consistently perform better financially, according to data from The Global Leadership Forecast 2014/2015 from DDI and The Conference Board. So, although more women graduate from college than men and are earning entry-level jobs in fields previously dominated by men, women are still outnumbered in the ranks of leadership. Come and listen to Tacy talk about finding your strength and the leader within you, exploring the confidence gap, identifying your personal wake-up call, and super power your network!
